New Years Resolutions for 2014

January 1, 2014

I have never been good at keeping resolutions that I set for myself, but I thought if I put them out in the open I might be more likely to keep them. So here they go:

My Resolutions

  • Participate and complete the 2014 NaNoWriMo.
  • Actively participate in a collaborative open-source project.
  • Continue to further my current open-source projects on Github.
  • Be better at regularly blogging. I want to post a blog entry at least once a week.
  • Improve my programming skill levels in both Python and Javascript.
  • Give a talk at a local meetup group.
  • Lose weight. I really want to hit my target goal this year; I made some progress in 2013, but not nearly enough.
  • Read more fiction. I have far too many books on my ‘to-read’ list and adding more all the time.
  • Expand the feature-set and user-base of BeerLedge.
  • Get more friends visiting the DC area at a regular clip.
  • Make more of an effort to see friends when back in Connecticut.
  • Most importantly, get married to my beautiful fianceé.

I am sure there are some things I am forgetting, but it definitely feels good to take some time to write these goals out. Here’s to a very Happy New Years to you and yours!
